Undergraduate Research Day April 15 attracted about 50 projects in a variety of disciplines to the AIMS Hall Atrium. Faculty judges selected first, second and third places in kinesiology, physiology, psychology and math/biology/physical sciences/history, with winners receiving gift cards to Charlotte’s Coffee Corner. Here, faculty Elizabeth Lake, psychology, and Ruth Dahlquist, biology (left and center, respectively), check out a display with participating students.
This building is home to the university's School of Natural Sciences and was completed in 2002. Funding for the building was provided by the AIMS Education Foundation, after which it is named. AIMS (which stands for "Activities Integrating Math and Science") was created in 1981 as an outgrowth of the FPU mathematics and science programs, and was incorporated as an independent entity in 1986.
